Forced Landing

Goose Fact #7: When a goose gets sick or injured and drops out of their "V" flight formation, another two geese fall out and follow it down to help and protect it. They stay with the fallen goose until it is either able to fly or until it is dead. Only then do they launch out on their own, or with another formation, to catch up with their group.

The strength of a training group is measured by how much its members look out for one another; care for one another and support one another!

Last Night at Parliament House saw the speedy geese Adam, Alan, Amanda, Caroline, Christopher, Emma, Ewen, Gary, Joel, me, Helen, Katie, Ken, Ruth, Sonia and Yelena run some interval training; three lots of 30, 40, 50 and 60 second runs, each with a good recovery. A great session. But when will the weather begin to warm up???

News from Narnia
Walt Disney Productions has announced that it will produce the entire "Chronicles of Narnia" collection onto film. Following the success of the debut film "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe", the company will attempt to release one movie a year, starting in May 2008 with the next installment, "Prince Caspian".

There are new hero creatures, specifically Badger and the mouse Reepicheep; there are huge battle sequences.

Can't wait.


  1. so who or what is the metaphorical white witch?

    and who is your eustace?

  2. My Eustace? I am not saying. Although, I am no Reepicheep, to exact justice or revenge.

    The White Witch? Anything compelling and destructive, that keeps people bound, perhaps? The tryranny of addiction would be a good example.
